Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) was joined by residents from the community Tuesday afternoon to express their outrage over the traffic changes coming to Ocean Parkway. Hikind explained how eliminating right turns from the mainline heading North and South onto Avenues J, P and Kings Highway would endanger the safety of children and families that live adjacent to Ocean Parkway, as well as bog down traffic along the service roads.
“Eliminating right turns will pose a dangerous threat to the safety of both pedestrians and motorists alike, and will undoubtedly create havoc for everyone who commutes and lives along Ocean Parkway,” Hikind said.
“I encourage everyone to join me at the rally this Sunday, Dec. 4th, at 11 a.m. on the corner of Avenue J and Ocean Parkway and encourage friends and family who oppose these disastrous changes to come voice their concern,” Hikind added. “I implore you to call Governor Cuomo at 518-474-8390 and the Mayor at 212-788-3000 and ask them and ask them to save Ocean Parkway.”
